pre.cluster crash

I’m using 1.29.2 and pre.cluster crashes, giving the following error:

[ERROR]: Your name file contains 0 valid sequences, and your groupfile contains 150793, please correct.

Running command: unique.seqs(fasta=vb3.shhh.trim.unique.good.filter.unique.precluster.fasta, name=vb3.shhh.trim.unique.good.filter.unique.precluster.names)
[ERROR]: vb3.shhh.trim.unique.good.filter.unique.precluster.fasta is blank, aborting.
Using vb3.shhh.trim.unique.good.filter.unique.fasta as input file for the fasta parameter.
[ERROR]: vb3.shhh.trim.unique.good.filter.unique.precluster.names is blank, aborting.

I noticed earlier in the process that unique.seqs is not producing the expected file names, e.g. output file names were:

Output File Names:

I was expecting vb3.shhh.trim.unique.names

Are these problems linked?

Many thanks in advance.

Could you send your logfile and input files to

Was there ever a resolution to this problem, I am having the same one, with the same discrepancy in name file generation with the names file

ok, resolved it. didn’t use the right names file somewhere upstream in the pipeline, mucks up everything downstream.
